"This young Great Horned Owl was captured in a moment of contemplation, perched on a tree branch in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Despite its young age, this owl is a skilled predator, known for its powerful talons and keen eyesight. It is a majestic and impressive creature, perfectly adapted to life in the Alaskan wilderness.

This little guy had landed on the grounded, and before long flew off to a nearby white spruce tree in the boreal forest. Great Horned Owl, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alaska.
